Migrant camps emerge in the heart of Paris

In recent weeks almost 500 refugees who have made their way to France via the notorious migrant boats across the Mediterranean have set up camp at two locations in the heart of Paris. But many tell The Local they have no plans of staying in the French capital.

Any mention of squalid migrant camps in France and most would think of those in and around Calais, but in recent weeks two temporary settlements have sprung up in the heart of the French capital.

They are occupied by almost 500 migrants, mostly from Eritrea, Sudan and Ethiopia…

    Pay African or Asian countries that are ‘culturally similar’ to take these economic refuges…indefinitely.

    They are no doubt hoping to reach the land of milk and honey across the Channel where they can rape and pillage at will, get a free house from the government and never be deported because the EU says they can’t. Thank God Canada is a long way from Africa. Mind you the university in my town is importing Africans at a great rate. Half the students you see on campus seem to African since the semester changed. The only consolation is that they don’t appear to be Muslims.

    Do what the Aussies do, put them in a boat with a compass, tow them out to sea, and give them enough fuel to get to African coast but not enough to make it back to Europe. They’ll stop coming. Better yet, send them to Turkey.

      The Europeans are too soft in the head to do that. Pack of fools.

        Same thing here.
        We did not send the tamils back that came by boot.
        They came a few thousand miles, ignoring hundreds of island incl. Australia, to land by sheer coincidence in Vancouver.

          Victoria. I wonder how that was stopped after the first 2 boats.

    Although I understand there is freedom of movement between European Union countries, can the authorities not check the immigration status of these urban campers and promptly deport anyone who did not arrive via proper channels. This seems like a total breakdown of rule of law. And not due to the overwhelming numbers of illegal immigrants but rather due to government’s refusal to even try to enforce the law. Kind of like what Obama seems to be doing.

    Are these the glorious 99% of Africans rebelling against the 1% and the resulting ‘Occupy Europe’ movement? *yuck*

    Summer vacation to Paris, anyone?

    They’ll be fighting it out with the Muslims in the streets soon. The government will demand that the Jews stop talking about leaving France. Problem solved.
